Entrepreneur and Forward Thinker
Chief Executive Officer
I am the CEO of Kenya Climate Innovation Center (KCIC) which provides holistic, country-driven support to accelerate the development, deployment and transfer of locally relevant climate and clean energy technologies. The KCIC provides incubation, capacity building services and financing to Kenyan entrepreneurs and new ventures that are developing innovative solutions in energy, water and agribusiness to address climate change challenges.
With over fifteen years of experience in business advisory, private equity, investment management, transaction services, structured finance and fund management in Africa, Asia, Europe and Russia. I can absolutely say that the experience has helped me be the leader I am today with adaptability to change and inspiring the new age generation to be have ‘own’ initiative when it comes to challenges and finding solutions.
My vision is to continually lead the push for clean technologies in Kenya, which had been an ongoing accomplishment to amplify this I have, plans to develop an Africa Center for Sustainability Leadership. The Initiative will engage leading International organizations and the private sector to future generations of leaders committed to advancing Africa’s corporate sustainability practices. I am also involved in various start- up business in Agricultural, Education, leadership and finance sector.
I have had the opportunity to teach and mentor students and also other working professionals in various universities in Kenya: A faculty member at Strathmore business School and Mount Kenya University in Kenya. Previously at Strathmore University CFA program, taught the EMBA Class of Inoorero University – Industry Competitiveness and sustainability issues.
Having many years of experience comes vast knowledge on various things thus my passion is to motivate others to reach their full potential and to never give up even when the journey is tough. When you suffer a crushing defeat you must use that opportunity to get back up because it is not about the fall it’s about how you dust yourself off and continue to fight. Jack canfield once said, “Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.
